While Basil Beattie is best known for his abstract paintings featuring architectural motifs, often including stairs, ladders and tunnels, his works on paper have formed an important part of his practice throughout his illustrious career. Psychological and physical complexity abound in the deceptively simple visual language used by Beattie to explore certain preoccupations, such as the passing of time and notions of the journey.
In this monochromatic series of etchings, motifs familiar throughout Beattie’s practice are layered to create abstract compositions. Chine-collé, the collaging of thin paper, adds interest to the surface of these works, published by The Eagle Gallery, London.
